ABSTRACT

Identifying Patterns to Prevent the Spread of Misinformation During Epidemics   [open pdf - 346KB]

From the Document: "'This paper discusses patterns of public health misinformation observed during infectious disease epidemics. Specifically we group epidemic-related misinformation into four categories: transmission, prevention, treatment, and vaccination. By developing tools, algorithms, and other resources around these categories, institutions, companies, and individuals can proactively limit and counter the spread of misinformation and its potential negative health effects.'"
